Enhancing Access to Care for First Nations People

Looking for a rewarding experience? ODA’s Remote Areas Program (RAP) delivers care in about 30 communities spread throughout northwestern Ontario, from the Kenora area all the way up to the Hudson Bay coast, a land mass equal to the size of France.

Oral health needs of First Nations people are costly, and the program provides an opportunity to help improve their oral health status.

RAP pays a competitive per diem and covers travel, accommodation costs and more. This is a rewarding program that you don’t want to miss out on. It’s a great opportunity to travel and get paid for contributing to a good cause.

We are looking for three types of positions
